Hi I'm Skydome
This is the version 2 of my More Real Vampires mod. It adds a lot more new features, hope you have fun using it
How the game originally handled that
Originally the vampire sim would get the heatingup moodlet after spending 60 minutes outside. The heating up moodlet would then last for 3 hours.This mod changes that depending on the flavor you download. The game would also kill your vampires when their thirst bar reches 0. Also Vampires could Read mind only in the night time and once a Sim's mind is read it can't be reread for the entire day.
This mod changes all that.
What does this mod do?
This mod makes vampires more real to the lore. The lore I know that is.
Version 1 features
1)This mod makes Vampires die from sunlight. The heating up moodlet will now appear instantly.
Once the moodlet times up Sims will get the OnFire moodlet and die when it times out.
2)This mod prevents Vampires from dying due to low thirst. Even if you use testingcheats to bring it down or have your witch cast thirst curse. Tremerion also had a mod which did that but the witch thirst curse and testingcheats could still kill them. Mine prevents that from happening as well.
3)Now I thought if my witch can no longer protect herself/himself from vampires so I had to do something for them. So I made it so that sunlight charm will make them pass out.
Version 2 features
1) Vampires now have the sense to stay inside during the day. I've made it so that Vampires will go inside their houses when they start heating up. However the inactive Vampires may still occasionally burn cause they're still too stupid to not play outside during daytime. I have Nraas mods(Master Controller, Register, Story Progression) installed. In my game Nraas Register makes it so a Firewoman\man will come to extinguish the burning inactive Vampire Sim before they die. Nraas mods especially Register is recommended for use with this mod.
2)Vampires will not burn if it's raining, snowing, foggy,hail.
3)Vampires can now Read Mind and make Sims think about them in the daytime and without cooldown i.e. they can do it repeatedly without getting Sims minds are too weak to be tampered with message(or something like that)
4)Vampires now have the option to Compel Sims Yay
Compel to drink is like the Sims 4 Compel to drink
Other compel options like Compel to be Friend, Compel to fight with... and many more
I'm not gonna write about all of it. I want you players to discover it on your own
Flavours for this mod
1)No Thirst:-This is a tuning mod. It makes Vampires immune to dying from low thirst. This mod can be used alongside other flavors.
3)Flavor1:-Vampires will burn after spending 1 hour in the sun
4)Flavor2:-Vampires will burn after spending 2 hour in the sun
5)Flavor3:-Vampires will burn after spending 3 hour in the sun
In my game I usually use Nraas Relativity to turn 1 real second=1 Sim minute to 4 real second=1 Sim minute. So for me flavour 1 works great but if you don't play this way then you should get flavour 2 or 3.
Version 2 of More Real Vampires can be considered pure scripting but it uses some tuning files as well. It tunes the VampireHunt_Terrain, VampireReadMind_Sim and VampireThinkaboutMe_Sim Itun files and motives.xml file located in gameplaydata.package. Any other mod that does the same will conflict with it.
Version 2 of More Real Vampires does not
tune Buffs.xml, thnx to Chain who taught me how to replace an EA moodlet with a custom one by script so the xml file was not needed anymore yay
Additional features I'm considering adding for the future if I can
1)Compel to workout interaction.(I should be able to do it)
2)Compel to sleep interaction.(I should be able to do this one as well)
3)Turn off emotions ability for Vampires to disable their Social need.(Like Vampire Diaries)
4)Vampire Powers skill. Similar to witch magic or Fairy magic skill but the Vampire version.
5)Vampiric age skill. This skill will be a way to determine how old a Vampire is. Older Vampires will be stronger.
(Have to learn skill modding)
6)Daylight Rings(Like the ones in Vampire Diaries, gain immunity to sunlight)
7)Bat transformation:-I'm not sure if this is even possible to do with a mod. All I can say is I'll try
8)Make Vampires run faster:-Not sure if this can be done either. I've seen lots of people asking about it in different forums and there hasn't been any success yet(as far as I know) So this too may be impossible.
I don't know when I'll add these since I'm new at modding and don't know exactly how to do it right away. I also have some other projects.
this mod works fine
with Sauzer's Vampire powers and Einrei's Vampire mod as far as I know)
This mod will conflict with other mods that change the VampireHunt_Terrain, VampireReadMind_Sim and VampireThinkaboutMe_Sim Itun files and motives xml file.
It will conflict with some of Shoni's Vampire overhaul flavours and the full version but most of it should work fine.
conflict with with Vampire Tweaker.
